Video Game News! 17th June 2012 – Tony Hawk, Sam Fisher, George Clooney.

1) Tony Hawk is producing the next Call of Duty.

Creator of the successful Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero games, Neversoft, are now working on the next Call of Duty title. Considering that Treyarch are hard at work with Black Ops 2, there is no information regarding what Neversoft have in mind for a future Call of Duty shooter.
There is a chance it could be the PS Vita release, Call of Duty, Black Ops: Decalssified. But why would we just be hearing about their involvement with the game scheduled to be released at the end of this year.

2) 
 Gold Dualshock controller available for Playstation 3.

In celebration of the Olympics (supposedly), Sony is releasing a special gold dualshock controller. It will be available in Europe sometime this month. The US will have to wait a few months until October to get their hands on this pointless but sexy controller.

 

3) Splinter Cell, the movie.

Assuming that a deal can be made with a film company and Ubisoft, we could be treated to Sam Fisher on the big screen. Ubisoft require to have control over the storyline so that the series remains faithful to the games. Paramount Pictures have worked with Tom Clancy before so seem most obvious to land the deal. I don’t know about you, but I would be thrilled with a Splinter Cell movie.  I know it seems insane, but wouldn’t George Clooney make a great Sam Fisher? As long as the emotionless Daniel Craig fails to play the part, we should be ok.

4) XBOX 720 details surface.

According to a 56 page document uploaded to scribd.com (that has now been brought down due to legal reasons), the next Xbox will be released in 2013, for $299 and will feature the Kinect 2 with special AR glasses. The document’s authenticity has not been verified and many gaming blogs have reached out to Microsoft for verification but no response has been given by Microsoft, unsurprisingly. The system will operate on six to eight ARM/Intel x86 cores running at 2Ghz with 4GB of memory.
There are many more details littered all over the web, so if you seek more knowledge I suggest you hit up Google search.
